One of the highest compliments I can pay David Fincher's Gone Girl is that I could have watched it for at least another hour. It's a fast-paced nail biter, full of outstanding performances and shocking twists. Not only that, it's a thought-provoking film with a bit of a sleazy streak that's obviously made for adults, something that may as well be a unicorn in the current film landscape. The film, based on Gillian Flynn's popular novel, was actually written by Flynn herself, and Fincher's realization of her script results in a surprising, chilling, captivating, dark, and occasionally humorous take on marriage, betrayal, and manipulation. Gone Girl is one of the most entertaining movies of the year.
